Arsenal are not interested in Yves Bissouma
Arsenal are not interested in signing Yves Bissouma from Brighton & Hove Albion this summer, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims.
The Gunners are likely to rebuild the squad during the summer transfer window after another disappointing league campaign.
The focus could be on the midfield department with Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi and Dani Ceballos expected to leave.
Bissouma has been a long-term target for the Gunners, and the club reportedly made contact with his agent at the beginning of the year.
It has been claimed in recent weeks that they are leading the race for the Malian's signature, but Romano has dismissed the speculation.
The reputed journalist emphasised that the Gunners have cooled their interest in the 24-year-old, and are looking at other options.
Real Betis' Guido Rodriguez and Borussia Monchengladbach's Denis Zakaria could be among the targets for the north London club.
There has been speculation that Granit Xhaka could be offered as a makeweight to sign Zakaria in the upcoming transfer window.
